As the opening day of the Premier League season looms, it is not just managers and big-money signings feeling the pressure.


The pay-TV broadcaster Setanta is being warned by the City that this season will be "make or break" for its bold bid to end Sky's domination of the sports television market.


The Irish broadcaster, which has shelled out hundreds of millions of pounds on top-flight sports rights, faces an uphill struggle to boost its subscriber figures to profitable levels

Why subscribe when you can just watch streaming online or go to the
pub? :rolleyes:

Setanta were great and I thought they were going to work wonders until they
brought in Setanta Sports 1&2 which has to be subscribed to....

I have Setanta Ireland which is pretty awesome IMO.....see a wide range of
sports and about 3 or 4 live prem games a season.


Hope they succeed!

!
OR when you can just but a dodgy box for half nothing.
Why pay for something if you can get it for free?

I'd love to know how many irish are actually registered here! :p....*cough* takeover! *cough* :p


Dunno mate....sorry....cheaper then Sky (I think)

UFC is unbelievable...watched a fight last week and it was brutal! It was this one
where both ended up getting a contract....vicious stuff!



Jazz: They're supposed to be getting caught or something.....codes being changed and such.
I really should get one though! :rolleyes:

RM: "Setanta"...;) lol, your reminding me of that stupid add where Clive Tydlsey is
selling pies and the lad keeps saying it wrong...

Ill ask my mate the name. I just watch it, he bought it, fixed it up etc.....
Ask me again though or pm me another time so I dont forget.

Can you buy single games with Setanta?

PremPlus or whatever it was, was decent cause you could just buy matches you want to see.

I agree, there's no point of buying Setanta the price is pretty steep for much less games than a cheaper (i think) sky, which shows more, and gives a vaster range of sports that i like (footy, golf, tennis, snooker). Whenever there on Setanta just use a stream :D I don't like Setanta, reminds me of that Premiership Plus a few years back which the price was something like 100quid a season which was really expensive.

Anyone interested in 'that' box, search for a little invention called, the Starview Box, or sometimes the DigiBox




manutdtalk.com does not condone the buying and use of illegal material...:p lol

^^ good man keano
thats the one I have . Starview...
make sure to get the second version of it cos it updates the channels automatically when they change the codes.....
If anyone needs the codes download the BigMaq toolbar ;-)

^^^The codes change very regularly now though so you are fairly thick if you don't get the best one really.



BTW....If anyone gets caught....unplug the cable at the back...and plug in the
radio, and that way you pass it off as a radio ;)

Don't want to buy online? Head to your local market or inner city stalls etc....

Gotta feeling I shouldn't be spreading all this! :p lol

The codes rarely change these days. You can get a good few weeks out of it now.
And when they do go, just check the website and bingo, the new ones are there.

Biggest 'uproar' I heard was when they changed them at half time in the United -
Arsenal game at OT....say that was a bit of a shock:p...

Anyway back to Setanta....and away from advising people on how to steal cable :p lol

I hate S*y and am hoping Setanta succeed this year and that each have to drop their prices. My dad would never, ever pay S*y at the moment. They have ruined modern sport imo.
